Should I bring my GF to meet my parents in this case?

Postby harmonica » Wed Oct 13, 2021 8:51 am

My birthday is coming up and my family likes to do a gathering for it every year. However, me and my gf have been dating for almost three months now, so I wonder if she expects to be introduced and be brought to such a gathering? What do you think?

It's just that my parents were really judgmental about your age difference once they asked me my gfs age and I told them she was 21 which is 16 years younger than me. The disagreement got kind of heated, so I wonder if I should invite her to come along at this point?

Or would that be a good idea still, relationship points wise, and will make me look secure about it more? What do you think?

Not knowing you all it's very difficult to answer.

How is your family? Are they generally judgemental?

Personnally I live now as far as possible from my family without cutting ties.

Are you close to your family? Do the relationship with your girlfriend seem already strong ?

How do you feel about the meeting?

If you have contact with your parents, can't hide it forever...

Tell someone today you love them, for Life is short. But scream it at them in Klingon, for Life is also confusing and terrifying.

They are not judgmental often, no.

My relationship with my gf seems pretty strong.

My relationship with my gf seems pretty strong. I am close to my family. I feel the meeting was okay, but could have been better of course.
